Diamond Myths and Realities

December 15, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EST

Are diamonds really scarce? Can anyone tell the difference between synthetic diamonds & natural diamonds? Does De Beers control the global diamond trade? These questions and more will be discussed in Craig Mudge’s photo-illustrated presentation entitled “Diamond Myths and Realities” on Tuesday, December 15, 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. at the Camden Public Library.  This event is free and open to all.
